<p>My new book, &quot;The Revolution Was Televised,&quot;&nbsp;is now available in print as well as for several eReaders.</p>

My new book, "The Revolution Was Televised," is now available in print as well as for several eReaders.

'The Revolution Was Televised' is on sale now!

A look back at TV dramas from 'Sopranos' through 'Breaking Bad' is now out in paperback

Last week, I told you all about my new book, "The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever," and said that it would go on sale around the week of Thanksgiving. As it turns out, the Kindle and Nook editions of the book were released much earlier than expected, while the paperback has come out slightly ahead of schedule today. (Other digital editions, for the iBookstore, Sony Reader, Kobo, etc., should be coming at some point in the next few weeks. The distributor I use for those sites works on a different schedule from everyone else. But if you want to read it on an iPad or iPhone, the Kindle app is really good, and is what I use for eBooks.)
